We then got a bit hungry so headed back to the market. We gabbed some food off a street store and walked to the nearby park to sit and eat. Was a top idea as the weather was great - sun was shining and no breeze - so we found a spot on the grass and spent an hour or so relaxing and enjoying the sunshine by the river near the Museum Island. On Thursday evenings most of the museums are free entry so like most other germans around we took up the invitation and went into the museum which had ancient egyption and greece stuff. It wasn't very big so it only took an hour to walk through and see it all.
This place was covered completely with graffiti, out the back was old car wrecks, massive steel sculptures, various techno music pumping and quite a number of people sitting around enjoying a drink in the sun. Inside the building you'd think it was just abandoned and all the kids had gotten in there with spray cans, but closer look at some of the stuff was really intricate - amazing what some people can do with a spray can. Some of the rooms were open and you can go in and see the artists work. A place we'll both remember as something distinctively different to what we're used to.
